Cancer and pregnancy
About this booklet
We have written this booklet in partnership with Mummy’s Star (see pages 2–3), a charity that supports women diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or in the year after birth.
We hope this booklet answers some of your questions and helps you deal with the feelings you may have. We cannot advise about the best treatment for you. It is best to talk to your doctor, who knows your medical history.
Throughout this booklet, we have included quotes from women who have had cancer during pregnancy. They have chosen to share their stories with us. Some are from Polly, who is also on the cover of this booklet. We hope this helps you feel that there are other women who understand what you are going through.
